NEW DEHLI, August 16. (Itar-Tass). – Rescuers found four bodies of 18 crewmembers of the diesel-electric Sindhurakshak submarine that sunk in Mumbai harbor waters.
“Our concerns that all crewmembers are dead may prove true”, a military source told Itar-Tass.
The rescue effort may take longer than expected earlier. After 60 hours of rescue activity it was reported about three dead bodies. The fourth dead crewmember was found later, and this was reported by Hindustan Times paper.
Search of another 14 crewmembers is hindered because of poor visibility underwater. In addition, part of the submarine’s hatches was deformed as a result of the explosions, and there may be needed more time to open them.
Rescuers continue to free the submarine from water. Earlier it was reported that this process might take one or two days and the whole rescue – up to one month.
